“So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.” Romans 8:1-2 The Holy Bible, The New Living Translation
So many that are suffering from drug addiction and alcoholism are suffering from something deeper and more painful.
It is abuse by parents when we were children. We never recover and kill the pain with booze and drugs.
This of course only makes the situation worse, not better.
When we surrender to the healing power of Christ, He will free us from this pain.
Sometimes it will happen instantly but most times it takes years of Christian counselling.
It is painful but well worth it.
As we are freed from the prison of abuse we surrender our addictions and because we trust Christ as our Saviour, those sins are forgiven. We belong to Him now, not the past that haunts and torments us . The power of the Holy Spirit sets us free.
We may, and most do, suffer from painful memories all their lives but each time this happens, The Holy Spirit comes and comforts and encourages us.
The Holy Spirit frees us from all prisons in our lives. Joseph a son of Jehovah
Prayer : Thank you Jehovah YAHWEH Ropheka ( God our healer Jeremiah 30:17 ) for healing the painful wounds from my past and setting me free from the prison of addiction that was destroying my life. I extol Thee in the name of He who frees all prisoners, Jesus Christ. Amen
May you be blessed to be set free from your dungeon by the greatest freedom fighter of all Jesus Christ. Amen
